These bars are a great sweet treat to have with your morning coffee or tea. They would also make a healthy afternoon snack or dessert!

  • 2 egg whites

Directions:

Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your loaf pan with non stick spray. Mix all your base layer ingredients together with an electric hand mixer. Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 8 minutes. While batter is baking mix ricotta, coconut and vanilla extracts, shredded coconut, egg whites and stevia in a bowl. Fold in blueberries. When base layer is done, pour the ricotta mixture over the top. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until set. Let it cool and serve!

I ate mine for breakfast the next morning. I topped a slice with some goat cheese and it gave it an additional layer of flavor! A great tanginess…..plus I am obsessed with anything goat cheese right now!

    Love your blog! Do you think you could sub yogurt for the ricotta cheese? I don't know if it would be firm enough though. Any suggestions?
